Adam Cohen, son of you know who.

The Low Millions are a pop-rock band from California. They launched their debut album, Ex-Girlfriends in 2004, under the recording label Manhattan Records.

Many of the songs on Ex-Girlfriends have lyrics which revolve around love and romance.

The hit single, Eleanor from their debut album has received widespread airplay on radio.

Adam Cohen (singer/guitarist) — son of songwriter Leonard Cohen
Michael Chavez (singer/guitarist)
Jorgen Carlsson (singer/bass)
Eric Eldenius (drums)


The first few riffs of this song are plagiarized by a VISA commercial I’ve been seeing on television. The one where a lot papers fly out of windows into the streets of a city. Has anyone else noticed? I’ve seen it the most during football / sporting events.




LOW MILLIONS LYRICS

"Eleanor"


Fine, I understand
Okay with me, if thats the plan
You can take the stereo, the TV and the video,
The bed, the sheets and pillows,
Before you go.
But for now, unlock the door
What are we doin' all this for?

Let me make you dinner one last t
ime
Then you'll go your way, and I'll go mine.

And I won't call you baby, (anymore)
Won't call you baby (like I did before)
Won't call you baby, anymore
Eleanor

You left your smell, you left your taste
You left me here with my mistakes
And I can't relate to what you say I've done
But just for you, I'll bite my tongue

And I won't call you baby, (anymore)
Won't call you baby (like I did before)
Won't call you baby, anymore

Eleanor I miss you
Eleanor be well
Eleanor I wish you'd release me from your spell

Come on!
Eleanor!
Do it!
You can- Do it!

And I can't call you baby, (anymore)
Won't call you baby (like I did before)

Won't call you baby, anymore
No I can't call you baby, (anymore)
Won't call you baby (like I did before)
Won't call you baby, anymore
Eleanor

I thought he was also in an earlier band or did he try it on his own first? I can't remember. His voice is certainly distinctive though because this song springs to mind the other song I heard on the radio. Can't recall the VISA ad either. Hmm, don't much today!

Back with info. Adam Cohen put out a solo album in 1998. Around the same time Randy Bachmann's son and Bob Dylan's son also had songs that were receiving air play.

http://www.radioblogclub.com has three Adam Cohen songs from his first album available.
